In NotScripts V0.9.1+, if you want to get NotScripts to not block plugins, paste the following two lines into the end of your CHANGE__PASSWORD__HERE.js file:
const DO_NOT_BLOCK_EMBEDS = true;
const DO_NOT_BLOCK_OBJECTS = true;
This could be useful if Google Chrome 7 gets click-to-load built in for plugins and you want to use that instead. Additionally, the following two lines will disable NotScripts from blocking iframes and scripts, respectively:
const DO_NOT_BLOCK_IFRAMES = true;
const DO_NOT_BLOCK_SCRIPTS = true;
I post these last two lines here for reference only since including them into your password file will completely defeat the purpose of NotScripts.
If you experience site compatibility problems or dialog boxes pop up asking if you want to leave a site after upgrading to NotScripts V0.9.5, try putting the following line into your NotScripts CHANGE__PASSWORD__HERE.js file:
const DO_NOT_MITIGATE_INLINE_SCRIPTS = true;
Inline script mitigation was introduced in NotScripts V0.9.5 and there appears to be some users that have an issue using it but the root cause of these problems is not yet known. Turning off inline script mitigation decreases security somewhat because you won’t have the benefit of mitigating inline scripts. However, inline script mitigation is intended to be temporary until Google Chrome properly fires before load events for inline scripts.

Please note that NotScripts requires the use of the HTML5 storage in Google Chrome. If you set Google Chrome to delete your cookies/HTML5 storage after every browser exit, NotScripts will not be able to effectively cache the site specific permissions and you will see frequent reloads. The default setup of Google Chrome works fine with NotScripts.
Tip from NotScripts user Arvind Chari: “FYI for anyone who is using this with sandboxie, installing the same extension once within the sandbox (and once outside the sandbox) solves any issues you might have once you run this browser sandboxed.”
